Modification Monday: Petal Halter
Original Pattern: Petal Halter
Knitter Extraordinaire: Marina (Rav id)
Mods: Aside from the lovely colour shift on the petals, she changed the neckline completely into a v-necked top, and added short sleeves using the same petal construction as the body. Details on the mods and instructions for knitting the sleeves are on her project page, here.
What Makes This Awesome: I love the graded colours from light to dark on this top, the shades she chose are absolutely perfect in relation to each other. And then there is the neckline! The sleeves!! When I first saw the pattern, I thought it was really interestingly constructed, but I wasn't sold on the neckline. This mod is the perfect solution. I love that the sleeves are the same tiered construction as the body of the pullover, it's a great detail that really makes this top look really well designed and balanced. A great mod, for sure!
